Mt. Healthy South Elementary Continues Tradition of National Fathers Walk Your Child to School Day 2019

As an annual event, Mt. Healthy South Elementary School invited fathers to walk with their children from the board office to the school to celebrate National Fathers Walk Child to School Day on Thursday, September 19.  Mt. Healthy Jr/Sr High School drumline band led the fathers and students march to school. Other family members were along the side of the march to cheer on the parade. A number of fathers and community members participated in our program that featured speaker, Mr. Brent Bedgood of the Talbert House’s Fatherhood Project. Mr. Bedgood spoke about fathers’ involvement in their children’s lives as well as inviting fathers to participate in the Fatherhood Project group to assist in supporting community fathers and their families. This day is such a special celebration to highlight the importance of having dads in their children’s lives as well as the joy and success they each experience from the inclusion.
